Tottenham Hotspur have expressed their displeasure upon learning that Barcelona have set an eye for their midfielder Tanguy Ndombele and want to buy him in the summer.
Spurs enjoyed a fairly good run in the last campaign where they managed to finish fourth in the Premier League, and emerged as runners-up to Liverpool in the Champions League.
But their achievement was overshadowed by the underwhelming performance that befell them at the start of the 2019-20 campaign, culminating in the firing of coach Mauricio Pochettino for Jose Mourinho in November last year.
The entry of the Portuguese coach has not yielded much to the team as the attitude is still cold in the dressing room.
Danny Rose left the club on loan for Newcastle United, Harry Kane has constantly threatened that he wants to exit, leaving the club in total disarray.
But the imbroglio is apparently not coming to an end as the Blaugrana are planning to come calling for their dependable midfielder, Tanguy.
The Spanish powerhouse are reportedly ready to swap the £54m star with centre-back Samuel Umtiti and right-back Nelson Semedo- this is due to Barca’s inability to splash the money at the moment following the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on their transfer budget.
As reported by @SkySportsNews.
➡️ Samuel Umtiti and Nélson Semedo
⬅️ Tanguy Ndombele

The information has since rattled Spurs’ fans on social media, who were bitter while delivering their honest thoughts concerning a move that is yet to happen.
Check out some of their reactions;
NO – Not under any circumstances whatsoever.
If we sell Tanguy Ndombele now we will regret it for years to come. Every player needs time to settle and adapt to a team.
He will become a star for Spurs in time & Josè Mourinho is showing him tough love to make him a better player.

Probably a child tbh

Umtiti is a massive injury liability and Semedo is merely a decent RB.
If they want to trade we need to be talking about De Jong or Arthur & ter Stegen.

No. Umtiti is made of glass and not anything too special anyway. Semedo I like but he alone is not enough.

If #THFC really want to sell, not sure best idea, the players offered by Barca smacks of desperation. Coutinho & Arthur 🤔

No. Rubbish deal
— Harry (@hazza_thfc) April 24, 2020
No, ndombele is way too special
— Jace (@JaceTucker1) April 24, 2020
No way. Throw in Messi, De Jong and Dembele and I’ll think about it.
